Happy Halloween

I don't know about you but I am ready for all fall! It has to be my favorite season and I love creating for this time of year. Today I have a Halloween card I created with some new products from Taylored Expressions.


I love how the background came out on this card! First I embossed Toffee Card Stock with the new Damask Embossing Folder. Next I used the Diagonal Strips Cutting Plate, cutting once from Oreo Card Stock and then the embossed card stock. I inlayed the embossed strips in the black frame. 


The flowers are cut with the Bloomers 1 Dies and the leaves with the Mini Leaves Dies from TE Felt.  I also used the Little Bits - Potion Bottles and the new Little Bits - Spider and Web Die. 

Thanks for stopping by and good weekend!

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Flamingo

Hi Everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog!  It is time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Flamingo. 

I hope you get a chance to play along. The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge.


Here's my take on the challenge using some summer dies from Taylored Expressions


After cutting and matting a circle in the middle of the card front I pulled together summer dies to build my scene. The hills and water are cut with the Build a Scene - Rolling Hills. I used a die included in the  On the Line Beach Cutting Plate to add the palm tree. Then I used the Little Bits Sun & Clouds, Flamingo, and Adirondack Chair to finish off the scene.


The sentiment is from the Fresh Floral Stamp Set.
